Perfectly situated in the heart of the pretty village of Appledore, Sunnyside is a lovingly restored semi-detached cottage, beautifully furnished with comfort and relaxation in mind. The deck, overlooking the garden, has views across the Torridge Estuary while three of the four bedrooms have wonderful views across the water to Instow (the beautiful beach at Northam Burrows is five minutes' drive away).

Appledore seafront is a few moments stroll from Sunnyside down narrow, winding streets of pastel-coloured cottages. On the quay you will find a gorgeous deli, several fabulous places to eat and the seasonal passenger ferry to take you across to the golden sands of Instow. Whether you are looking for a much-needed family holiday or a getaway with friends, Sunnyside has all you need for the perfect break.

Sunnyside is set at the top of a quaint cobbled street, surrounded by similar, beautifully kept properties (the house has use of a private parking space - a real bonus in Appledore). As is usual here, access to the front door is gained down a shared footpath. A stunning, original feature front door with stained glass window welcomes you into the hallway with a beautiful, tiled floor and traditional high ceilings. The sitting-room is perfect for relaxing after a busy day with comfy sofas and a Smart TV to catch up on the latest movie. The kitchen/diner has been beautifully crafted with all the equipment you'll need, including the all-important dishwasher. Gather everyone around the refectory table to chat about the day's adventures, (you will find additional chairs in the cupboard). The kitchen leads out onto the raised deck, perfect for al fresco dining with blissful views towards the estuary. Sit on the patio with an aperitif in hand as the evening sun goes down, how lovely does that sound? A separate cloakroom with WC and basin completes the ground floor.

Climb the stairs to the first floor and three gorgeous bedrooms await, all furnished with luxurious comfy beds and linens for a great night's sleep. Bedroom one has a 'zip and link' bed giving you the choice of either twin beds or a super-king. Pretty bedroom two has a gorgeous blue velvet sleigh bed and is adorned with lovely linens and that all-important estuary view. Bedroom three is a second 'zip and link' room, great for flexibility on your holiday. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, perfect for a long soak after a busy beach day. Stairs lead to the second floor where bedroom four awaits, an oasis of peace and tranquility. The canopy bed is simply stunning and perfectly positioned to watch the fishing boats coming in and out as the sun rises. This spacious room has an en suite bathroom making this a perfect principal room.

Outside, Sunnyside's pretty garden has a teak table and chairs for dining on the deck, a relaxing rattan sofa on the patio, plus a bistro table and chairs on the grassed lawn where the family dogs and children can let off steam. Benches offer quiet spots for a holiday read and there are two loungers for relaxing in the sun and outside storage for your beach gear and wetsuits. Whether you plan to spend your days enjoying the delights of Appledore or explore further afield, Sunnyside is a peaceful haven with all you need for the perfect holiday.

Appledore is such a fabulous place for a getaway, with a great deli (ideal for picnic ingredients), shops and eateries, that you may never wish to leave the village. The local pub is the place to be on Monday evenings where you can sit with a drink and listen to the brass band on the harbourside. If you do decide to travel further afield why not take the seasonal passenger ferry over the water to Instow where you will find miles of white sandy, dog-friendly beaches, some good pubs and the Tarka Trail. Water sports lovers should head for the surfing beaches of Westward Ho! and Croyde where the Atlantic rollers provide endless fun. The picturesque village of Clovelly is a short drive away, with steep cobbled streets and a scenic harbour, a day can be spent here admiring the views. The market town of Bideford is close by with a good selection of eclectic shops and cafes. If you fancy a day trip to Lundy Island to see the wildlife, catch the seasonal passenger ferry from the quayside.

However you plan to spend your blissful holiday days, Sunnyside provides the perfect base for your north Devon getaway.
